Some 50 mentors from a range of professions — including elected officials, artists, writers, photographers, graphic designers, a veterinarian, chefs, and police officers — talked about their careers with East Hampton High School sophomores on Tuesday morning. Students picked two areas to learn about during two half-hour sessions with the mentors, a number of whom were East Hampton graduates themselves.

Among the many on hand to share their professional experience were East Hampton Town Councilwoman Kathee Burke-Gonzalez; Nora Kleps, a veterinarian; Dell Cullum, Michael Heller, and Durell Godfrey, photographers; Abigail Vogel, an artist; John Musnicki, a graphic designer, and T.E. McMorrow, a reporter for The Star and children’s book author.
